According to a new report, the Vanderpump Rules couple experienced intimacy issues prior to their breakup. And while it never actually happened, Sandoval, who is said to be in a full-blown relationship with Raquel at the present time, allegedly “tried to break up with Ariana before.”
“They hadn’t been intimate in a while. There came a point where they stopped having sex,” a source told The U.S. Sun. “Tom and Ariana’s relationship wasn’t perfect. They were having issues these past few months.”
“Everyone will see how things unravel on the show,” the source added.
“Tom isn’t moving out just yet. They’re figuring things out and who’s getting what,” the insider revealed.
As Ariana remains “heartbroken” and continues to lean “on her friends for support,” the same can’t be said for Raquel. In fact, after a massive falling out with Scheana Shay, who Raquel filed a restraining order against after she was accused of attacking her after learning of her relationship with Sandoval, Scheana “wants nothing to do with Raquel.”
“Their friendship is over. She’s 100 percent standing by Ariana’s side. Scheana feels betrayed and can’t believe Raquel crossed the line,” the source shared.
Amid the drama on Tuesday, Sandoval was spotted at a building in Los Angeles that is home to the offices of numerous therapists and psychotherapists. However, while TMZ confirmed Sandoval was there for a two-hour session with a therapist, they noted that Sandoval had been seeing a therapist long before the scandal broke.

As Sandoval and Raquel allegedly continue on with their apparent romance, sources have confirmed that there is no hope for reconciliation between him and Ariana.
“Tom and Ariana are telling friends they are totally done and aren’t getting back together,” an insider revealed to Entertainment Tonight on March 7. “Ariana has no plans to get back with Tom after what he did to her and Tom is ready to move on. Ariana is devastated and feels betrayed, something she won’t be able to get over for a long time.”
As Ariana struggles to cope with Sandoval’s betrayal, Sandoval hasn’t hesitated to reunite with Raquel, paying her a visit on Saturday.
“Tom and Raquel were filming a scene for Vanderpump Rules,” a source explained of the visit. “This was not a late-night hookup or anything more than doing their job. Their call time was 6 p.m. and that’s when Tom arrived at Raquel’s apartment to film.”
“This has been going on for upwards of six months,” the source added of their rumored affair. “All the while, Tom was sleeping next to Ariana in bed.”
Vanderpump Rules season 10 airs Wednesdays at 9/8c on Bravo.
